A few weeks ago I bought a Allsop Softride
frameset. I build the bike with new parts, parts I had here and with some from ebay.
Last sunday I made the first ride and I loved it more and more per kilometer
You don`t feel any cobblestones ! Like standing on air
Agile and good in going straight ahead (road downhill with 25 mph).
I think during the winter I will buy other wheels in silver and tyres from Continental (Race King).
Here are pictures and the partlist:
The beam sandwich: two layers of carbon with elasticated material in the middle.
The upper layer shifts against the lower and is a part of the suspension.
Front fixation is only made by the lower layer.
